The Disturbance Reduction System, or DRS, designed as part of the Space Technology 7 project, is an experimental system for measuring gravitational waves in space, which are thought to contain important data about the history of the universe.

The system was incorporated into the European Space Agency's LISA Pathfinder spacecraft to test key technology for a future ESA/NASA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna mission.
